L’Après-midi d’un faune
L’Après-midi d’un faune was shown with What Wild Ecstasy. It made its premiere at His Majesty’s Theatre, Aberdeen on 15 February 2012, during the Seven for a Secret… Tour 2011/12.
Inspired by Debussy’s languorous and shimmering score and considered to be one of the first modern ballets, L’Après-midi d’un faune, created for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes, caused a furore at its first performance 100 years ago. The Rambert version of Vaslav Nijinsky’s seminal short ballet is revived by the Company for the first time in almost 30 years.
